In this course, the intertwined questions of professional and personal self-care are investigated in a holistic manner, working from a paradigm of growth mindset aligned with a positive psychology stance, to offer insights and strategies for all levels of self-care. Chapters 1 and 2 explain the philosophical framework of the course. Chapter 3 examines questions of exercise, diet, and sleep: the chief physical means of tending to self-care. Chapter 4 asks about the scope, intensity, and direction, or purpose, of your services as a mental health provider. Ways of maximising supervision are covered, along with a look into life-work balance, remuneration (for your therapeutic services), and why as a mental health provider you need therapy. Chapter 5 treats the twin topics of: (1) connection, as seen in the central questions of social support and exercises for improving your relationships with self, Other, and the Self; and (2) individuation - issues such as boundary-setting, assertiveness, and locus-of-control. A section on self-compassion completes the chapter. Chapter 6 discusses the importance of developing stillness and mindfulness practises, with Chapter 7 suggesting the completion of an action plan to consolidate course gains.

Upon successful completion of the course you will be able to:

  • Articulate your purpose or WHY
  • Adopt a growth mindset
  • Offer compassion to yourself
  • Self-care through clarity about your work offering, supervision, life-work balance, charging for services, and gaining therapy for yourself
